Manila Business Leadership Seminar 04/13

April 7, 2013

Join us on April 13, 2013 for the second run of the Manila Business Leadership Seminar. It is a gathering of students and young professionals to know more about themselves and tap their potential to be empowered and purpose-driven individuals.


Saddleback Manila is bringing together the brightest minds in business with speakers like Boris Joaquin, Seasoned Management & Marketing Professional and Ron Gess, Associate Director for Verizon Technical Services, who is flying in from California. Damon Harrison, who will be coming in with Ron, will conduct a SHAPE Discovery session – a fun self-discovery activity. Of course, we will be showing a message from Pastor Rick Warren!

  4. This is great, I wanted to attend this kind of seminars but sadly I am so far away and going to Manila will be very costly. Hope many will attend to this event because I am sure they will learn a lot from the speakers.

  5. I’d love to go but it’s conflicting my regular work so I couldn’t make it to be part of the event. I wish there’s still next time.

  6. This could have been very appealing, if it’s near in Cebu. Looking forward if you have an event here. While it is FREE I know many will grab this opportunity.

Let's Talk!
